It's a stupid idea, and a sign of a very primitive culture. Pedophilia is a sickness of the mind. A stressed mind, most likely abused at an early age, and grew to be ill and in need of an intervention.
They need to be kept out of society, and taken care of, tended to. It's a perversion of the mind, not the genitals. It's a sickness like many others, no matter how heinous. There are people more tolerant of this than people in this thread, and they work in the medical field and fully understand this.
An individual who actually molests or rapes a child, is more than likely never walking public streets again, some exceptions have been made, but for the most part.. no parole board is going to free a child rapist.
It's always "for the children", isn't it? Yet you people don't really care about the children, to be perfectly honest. You're not concerned with how the child is cared for in such an event, you only want to see blood and more pain, and death.
There is such a thing as redemption, and true justice. It doesn't come from the end of a needle, from the further maiming of a human being, who probably suffered tremendous abuse to be so sick to begin with, and their death doesn't solve anything either.
The sick should be cared for, no matter what. Otherwise we have no right to be calling ourselves civilized. Does no one stop and wonder how certain individuals can become so degraded and ill, to bring themselves to hurting children like this? Do you think it stops when the state is authorized to maim people, along with executing them. Yet no concern is set side, about the particulars of said illness?
Perhaps we should bring back the public squares, with the flowing crowds, everyone with a stone in each hand, ready to dispense their version of justice. Certainly, everything goes away when you hurt it and kill it.. right?
There is no such thing as a "true" non offending pedophile.
Pedophiles groom young and very young children with sweets and treets befriending
their families into trusting them as some sort of genial, generous "uncle" so as to get
access to abuse them through time.
And if a pedophile has not yet actually and physically
acted out on his impulses he will have in all probability viewed videos/films of actual abuse
being carried out and there is a victim at the end of every one of those video/films so that
would make him GUILTY by PROXY.
Pedophiles are MONSTERS but are very hard to recognise because they look just like your
father, son, brother, uncle, grandfather nephew, that 'nice man next door, even the priest.
In this country (i cant
speak for anywhere else) juries can't find someone guilty if there is ANY doubt the offender
gets off and so NO ONE is punished on MERE SPECULATION

I believe that robbing a child of their innocence is a crime that is heinous enough to warrant the death penalty. The shear amount of psychological trauma that is caused by such an act can very well destroy someones life. Taxpayers shouldn't have to foot the bill for these pieces of human trash to be "treated" and chemically castrated. Crimes against children are the worst kind period. If one of these bastards touched my children they wouldn't live to be chemically castrated. I'm sure a lot of parents out there feel the same way that I do. Pedophiles are absolutely the worst of the worst. If Hell exists I'm sure there is a special place there for them.

Yes it is a sickness, but I don't think stress has anything to do with it. Many of these people were abused as children themselves, I agree, but I am lost on what you mean by "It's a stupid idea."
I work in the medical field. I take shifts in the ER to keep my skills sharp. You are sadly mistaken of people in healthcare being "more tolerant" of this. Have you ever had to stand in a room with a child who has been raped...I have. I washed him off while he shook, vomited and just stared into blank space. This was of course after the investigations, pictures, kits and everything else that happens when these cases come in. You have no idea what you're talking about. As far as these people being "tended to"...I guess you've found your calling. You need to go get your certifications and get to work. While you're at it, you can foot the bill for them as well, because I sure don't want my tax dollars going to provide hot meals and a warm place to sleep for these monsters.
These people are released every day. Concerned parents and others circulate petitions to keep them out of their neighborhoods and such only to be told these "people" have the right to live wherever they want. How nice indeed.
You just slipped the noose around your neck with this one. You talk about caring for child rapists and tending to them, then criticize others for not caring about the children. It appears to me, sir, you aren't concerned about the children at all, but the well being of those who have harmed them. Your statement here has left me utterly speechless. There's really nothing to say, as this statement speaks for itself.
I agree, the sick should be cared for. I don't, however, understand how you link coddling individuals who cause further damage to society being civilized.
You havent killed anyone because you know if you did you would have to pay the penalty
for it. (I see you are in the US and i understand your laws for murder differ from State to
State so i dont know what sentence you would get) here in the UK you would get life.
The instance of murder in the UK has gone up over the years since the death penalty was
dropped - so it would seem punishment DOES deter crime.

Child molestation and sex offences are committed against girls and boys who the LAW

Referring to your own actions it appears you conducted yourself in an appropriate manner

children can be coquettish, but they are physically and mentally unaware of their behaviour -
so it is the responsibility of the ADULT to be protective toward them and preserve their
With the law in the UK EVIDENCE is SUPREME and perception is NOT reality it is

You keep on citing rape and one person's word against another's but this thread is about
pedophelia and in cases involving minors medical EVIDENCE reigns supreme as proof
of interference and abuse. And again the law states where there is doubt there can be no
